She'll tear a hole in you, the one you can't repair

For whatever reason, I've been getting my timing really badly lately and have been constantly in some frantic hurry to get to class at the last minute. Because of this, since getting dressed is the last thing I do, my outfit tends to be haphazardly thrown together in about two minutes. Two minutes of snatching things off the ground, of grabbing jackets out of the closet, and of accidentally putting on stockings with giant runs in them.
 
Today's outfit is a great representation of that frenzy.
 
I checked the weather before I left and pretty much just said, "Ho hum, I'll wear boots but I should be warm enough in a sweater." Wrong! Unless if I was seated directly in the sun, it was much to windy to be considered warm out today. It was chilly. I needed a jacket. My Minnesota instict was telling me, "Grab a jacket, grab a jacket." But the silly little summer girl in me was laughing and saying, "Ha ha ha! A jacket?! You must be joking!"
 
Also, why is it that I tend to reference the weather in every, single blog post. And go on about it in depth. I should simply rename this blog: Minnesota Weather and Occasional Personal Style Blog. Rolls right off the tongue.
 
Anyways, the shorts are vintage from Up Six which I bought last year for Halloween. The boy who sits next to me in my public speaking class said something like, "Those are some crazy shorts! I bet no one else has any like those..." And he's probably right! I bought them because I thought that they were hilarious and also because they were my university's colours. Woo, go UMN!
 
Can I please just express how very glad I am that the week is almost over? (Why do I ask permission? This is my blog, I can say whatever I want! Like puppies. Puppies puppies puppies!) I just want to lay on the couch and watch movies all weekend...too bad I have so much schoolwork on top of my job! Tonight is going to be mini spa night while catching up on my French reading. Hurrah!
 
p.s. Title is from the song Stubborn Love by the Lumineers!

I've seen your pictures on quite a few websites (with a link of course), and I couldn't be happier to have stumbled across your blog. Your style is simply impeccable and I love the way you write. I'm just gonna come right out and say that out of the blogs that I've seen, yours definitely makes me think of you as a "style icon".

Chloe, those shorts are AWESOME! You truly have some of the most unique pieces that I would never see on another blog! For something thrown together quickly, this came out really nice! I like that your outfit is both preppy (the cardigan & button-up) and glam (those sequin hotpants!). Sucks that you had to do homework over the weekend! That ruins the whole purpose! Hope you got it all done!

perfectly priya

stop apologizing for those shorts! they are incredible! I wish I could nab a pair- they are sooo early 90s Versace.
You are adorable- I wish I had you hair and your commentary is so sweet. etc, etc, etc- keep up the cute looks!
